Galaxy Tour: Greater Javin: Anoat Sector


Allyuen System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Allyuen

Allyuen is a frozen world mining conglomerates have taken interest in for its rich deposits of chromite.


Anoat System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: Anoat

· Orbits:

o Kyood’s World

o Vinza

o Gentes (one moon/satellite)

§ Belsus

o Anoat (one unnamed moon/satellite)

o Deyer

o Anoat Belt

o Pujool (six unnamed moons/satellites)

Perhaps the largest system in the sector, Anoat is orbited by six planets. The first planet was a scorched, barren world not suitable for inhabitation. Vinza, the second orbit, was a hot, sulfuric world with runaway greenhouse gases. The last planet in the system, Pujool, is a gas giant. The Anoat Belt was located between Deyer and Pujool, perhaps the remnants of a proto planet in the system’s early stages of development.


Gentes, the homeworld of the pig-like humanoid Ugnaughts, was a swampy world etched by mountain ranges and volcanoes. When Cloud City was constructed, Ugnaughts immigrated to the floating city to work the tibanna mines. During the millennia-long New Sith Wars, Gentes was the site of a Sith academy that instructed their fiercest Marauders. Come the time of the Clone Wars, Gentes fell under CIS jurisdiction after Grievous conquered it.


Gentes’ moon, Belsus, also housed a sizable Ugnaught population, nestled in underground cities centered around mining operations. When Grievous took over the system for the CIS, he set up a laboratory to study the Force. However, after a Jedi infiltrated the moon to kill Grievous, the resulting battle not only spelled the doom for the Jedi, but also the underground cities, as the thermal core was destroyed.


Anoat, one of the other inhabitable planets in the system, was originally a pristine world. However, once the Republic became the prominent presence in the system, corporate interests moved in and heavily polluted the planet. As a result, most of Anoat became barely inhabitable, except for the planet’s capital city, Anoat City. During the Galactic Civil War, Rebel hero Kyle Katarn extracted an Imperial weapons designer from the planet.


Deyer, the third inhabitable world in the system, was an aquatic world with large, floating raft cities. Deyer was known for being peaceful, with an anarchistic government. However, when the population spoke out against the destruction of Alderaan, Deyer incurred the full wrath of the Empire. All its floating cities were destroyed, and the planet utterly dominated. Jedi Master Kyp Durron hailed from the planet.


Bavva System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Bendeluum

A world with a significant criminal underworld controlled by Nothoiins, the planet also housed a small Rebel base during the Galactic Civil War.


Bespin System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: Bespin

· Orbits:

o Miser

o Orin

o Velser’s Ring (asteroid belt)

o Bespin (two moons/satellites & various minor moonlets)

§ Drudon

§ H’gaard

Miser, the closest orbit to Bespin, was a searing, barren world that was mined for its gententhium and iron core, being the main source for the construction of Cloud City. Orin, also an inhabitable, volcanic world, has an obsidian landscape with rivers of lava and a choking, ashy atmosphere. It has an elliptical orbit that sends it into the nearby Velser’s Ring asteroid belt, the remains of a frozen gas giant that became unstable and fractured into asteroid remains that, from a certain vantage point, refracted a rainbow ring around its star.


Bespin, another gas giant with a rethin core, was a major source of tibanna gas, mined by many companies from floating cities like Cloud City and Tibannopolis. Cloud City found itself centered in galactic affairs when Darth Vader used its carbonite facilities to try to capture his son, Rebel hero Luke Skywalker. Prior to the Clone Wars, Bespin had a Jedi academy, led by the unorthodox Jedi Master Djinn Altris, head of the Altisian Jedi sect.


Bespin also had two moons, Drudonna and H’gaard, both ice-covered. Drudonna housed a base for miners to rally before venturing off to Velser’s Ring, while H’gaard had a unique green ice landscape, causing both satellites to appear greenish in the Bespin sky.


Burnin Konn System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Burnin Konn

Its natural landscape destroyed come the time of the Galactic Civil War, Burnin Konn was a mining world rich in dolovite and kammris ore.

A simple terrestrial world, Council acted as a governmental rendezvous for rulers of the various Nothoiin colony worlds to meet and discuss political issues pressing their territory.


Darlyn Boda System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Darlyn Boda

Reminiscent of the swampy jungles of Nal Hutta, Darlyn Boda was a lawless planet with a vibrant black market and criminal presence. Even during the height of Imperial control, Darlyn Boda openly hosted a Rebel base, a Black Sun stronghold, and the Bounty Hunters’ Guild. Though the Republic and Empire had some control over the local government, neither party could ever fully tame Darlyn Boda.


Delphon System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Delphon

o Delphon IV (one moon/satellite)

§ Regosh

o Delphon 7

Little is referenced about the worlds of the Delphon system. All three planet’s, including Delphon IV’s moon Regosh, supported a sizable population to be represented in the Imperial Senate. At one point, the Empire unsuccessfully attempted to purge the Black Hole Gang from their headquarters on Delphon.


Ertegas System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Ertegas

Ertegas was a basic agri-world for the sector, though many believed its droids secretly ruled over the population.


Gerrenthum System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Gerrenthum

Gerrenthum was a major economic hub for the sector. Its strategic location at the crossroads of many trade routes helped forge it into a thriving urbanized world.


Hoth System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: Hoth

· Orbits:

o Shron

o Biosh

o Nushk (four unnamed moons/satellites)

o Jhas (twenty-four unnamed moons/satellites)

o Ordaj (sixteen unnamed moons/satellites)

§ Ordaj Besh

o Hoth (three unnamed moons/satellites)

o Hoth asteroid field

The inner five planets in the Hoth system were all void of life, with both Shron and Biosh being barren, volcanic worlds, Nushk being mostly covered by vast methane oceans and Jhas and Ordaj being gas giants. One of Ordaj’s moons, Ordaj Besh, briefly housed a pirate base, but the only planet in the system to historically sustain life was Hoth, acting as the homeworld of the primitive, though sentient, Skel species.


Hoth was a world controlled by the Infinite Empire, before the receded into forgotten history. Hoth was rediscovered well before the year 4,000 BBY and was the site of a battle between the Republic and “True” Sith Empire in 3,665 BBY, during the Great Galactic War. During the Galactic Civil War, Hoth briefly housed a Rebel base, before it was destroyed by the Empire in 3 ABY. Many of its indigenous creatures would later come under protection by the New Republic, as hunting had thinned out their populations.


At the edge of the system laid an asteroid field, the remnants of two terrestrial worlds colliding early in the system’s development. The asteroid belt was used by pirates and smugglers to avoid the authorities. During their escape from Echo Base on Hoth, Han Solo hid his ship amongst the asteroids. Almost a decade later, Hutts attempted to build their own superweapon, the Darksaber, but the project ultimately failed when it was crushed between asteroids.


Ione System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Ione

A world of cityscapes, seas and plateaus, Ione has changed hands many times over the millennia: falling into Nothoiin space, Mugaari space, a Republic world, and an Imperial outpost. Due to the changes in allegiance, Ione saw an array of species call Ione their home. Like most planets in the sector, Ione became a mining world that exported ores and gems.


Isis System (K-18)

Ison System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: Ison

· Orbits:

o Ison

A desolate, barren world debated by astronomers as to whether it is a planet or planetoid, Ison served as a jump point for Rebel forces traversing in and out of the Hoth system, avoiding Imperial patrols in the sector.


Kirtarkin System (K-18)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Polmanar

A temperate world relying on textile and medical narcotic exports, Polmanar shifted allegiance during the Galactic Civil War when the Empire attempted to impose increased taxes on its export of medical narcotics. As a result, the planetary government worked with local guerrilla groups and the Rebel Alliance and successfully pushed the Empire out of the system.
